Hi Mimi, Hi Keith,
The example I was thinking about is very similar to Keith's, I think,
but Keith's user story is better. As I think of more stories, I will
My typical case is to be in the calendar view and, triggered by a
particular item in the day or week calendar view, to have a desire to
view events related to this event. I do this by switching to the table
view, sorting on the title column, and scrolling to the grouping of
interest. I have had the case where I had initially created a recurring
event series, and later had changed the date of instances of the event
in an irregular manner. As Keith also mentioned, it is easier and faster
to find and view them all in the table than to look for them in the
calendar. As I type this, I realize I could also use search to
accomplish this. Given the recent improved reliability and performance
of search, I will be playing with using search to accomplish the same thing.
(Which reminds me that a potentially neat future item when the table is
sorted by title would be the ability to type a letter and have the focus
jump to the first item starting with that letter.)
